Insight – a commodity reseller not a place to work in professional services

I worked at Insight full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working for Insight introduced me to some nice contacts and gave me the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects.

Cons

My initial experience with Insight was good, but it soured the longer I worked for them. It was upon resigning for a better opportunity I discovered how I was better off leaving them when I did. If one isn’t a resident of California, Massachusetts or Illinois, upon leaving Insight they forfeit all accrued PTO and comp time. Working for them, it was easy to see that the company is driven more by hardware and software sales than the services they sell. Additionally, the rate at which I saw top talent leaving Insight, over my tenure, was a sign that it wasn’t a place that was willing to compensate or take care of its people. I’ve had friends recruited by the firm, and I’ve provided them the same cautions.

Advice to Management

Improve compensation and benefits; move away from the commodities sales business model.

    I have been working at Insight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was stationed at a client site in the Tampa FL area 5 days a week. My boss who was not a technical guy what so ever never came around

    Cons

    There was no room for advancement and everything that upper management ever promised me such as raises and paying for certifications never happened. My job as a systems engineer was sort of a dead end job.

    I worked at Insight full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team members are the best part of the company. The hours are not terrible and the facility is nice complete with a cafeteria.

    Cons

    Over the past 18 months the company has gone through a complete leadership change at the VP level. They are bringing in many executives who hit the ceiling with competitors such as CDW and putting them into leadership roles. Unfortunately this has added significant ego and ladder climbers to that level. I believe C level executives and board of directors are good but don't realize the determent the incoming executives are creating on the company. I voluntarily left at the point I realized I couldn't feel good about myself representing their brand. It used to be customers, company and employees were the top priorities. It now is VP's, Share holders, customers, company and then employees.

    Advice to Management

    Check the egos and actual records of VP's coming into the company. You have not brought in talent you have brought in someone else's baggage.
